The lightweight Friday Polo
A lightweight summer version of the classic Friday Polo, a long-sleeved polo shirt produced in collaboration with bespoke Neapolitan shirtmaker Luca Avitabile.
Available only in navy, the Friday Polo is made in a fine, breathable pique that is perfect for summer. It has also been refined and improved over previous Friday Polos, particularly around the placket.
Designed to sit perfectly under tailoring, the Friday Polo has a collar stand like a dress shirt, and is cut high - enabling it to roll outside the jacket collar and not slip underneath it.
It also has a relatively slim body and high armhole, and is cut long, like a regular shirt, in order to stay tucked in.
The shirt is hand cut in a Naples atelier, with five aspects also sewn by hand: buttonholes, (mother of pearl) buttons, gussets, ends of the cuff placket, and hand-inserted sleeves.
It uses a beautiful mid-weight cotton piqué from Caccioppoli that makes it ideal for wearing most of the year, under different weights of jacket.
The shirt is pre-washed, and so should not shrink. Wash cool and line dry.
Soft and pliable, comfortable and yet elegant, the Friday Polo is a new sartorial staple.
The shirts have a moderately slim fit. If you are unsure about the fit, we recommend comparing the measurements below to a polo shirt you already own. The measurements are in centimetres.
